Liked: Absolutely nothing to like about this hostel. Thinking of staying at this hostel? Be warned, stay away from this hostel.

Disliked: STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOSTEL‼ I booked this hostel through hostelbookers.com and i have received confirmation e-mail. I showed up at the hostel and asked staffs to check me in,showing confirmation e-mail to them. What they told me then really shocked me because they told me they had no room that was available. They knew I was coming, apparently,but took group of people came asked for room instead of me. They did not even make apology and they were rude.please go somewhere else.
